FA Cup draw

2 December 2012

Latics away to Nottingham Forest

Latics have been drawn at npower Championship club Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup with Budweiser.

It will evoke special memories as it is a repeat of the 1990 Littlewoods Cup final between the two teams at Wembley.

And the tie will be special for Latics' on-loan striker Matt Derbyshire as it is against his parent club.

Derbyshire is due to return to the City Ground in mid-December, though he won't be able to play against Latics as he is cup tied having appeared in the competition for Latics against Kidderminster Harriers and Doncaster Rovers.

The match is to be played over the weekend of January 5th/6th. 

The draw was made by Tottenham legend Ledley King and former Bolton Wanderers' player Fabrice Muamba.

Look out later on the official website for reaction to the cup draw.
